The primary goal of creating these Otter House jigsaw puzzles was to ensure each and every element were created sustainably, without compromising on quality. As jigsaw puzzles need to meet heavy-touch demands, it was important to ensure that all sustainable materials used were also able to stand up to these pressures, plus meet the demands of repeat use, longevity, and increased UV exposure.
Sustainable Jigsaw Puzzle Materials
The Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces
Imago produce various iterations and designs of these products including versions with 1000 pieces, 500 pieces, and 500 XL pieces. The jigsaw puzzles are created by printing 4/0 on both 250gsm FSC certified art paper over an FSC 1.8mm board. The materials were sourced and safety tested by Imago to ensure that the overall, finished Otter House jigsaw puzzles were beautifully printed, robust, and fully sustainable in their production.
The Box and Packaging Materials
The environmentally friendly materials used were not limited to just the jigsaw puzzle pieces either. We worked closely with Otter House to meet their criteria for reduced and sustainable packaging, including a smaller box making the entire order more sustainable to produce and transport, plus a paper bag to hold the jigsaw puzzle pieces rather than a traditional polybag. Further to this, instead of plastic shrink-wrap on the outer box, it was sealed with two FSC certified, circular paper stickers complete with printing.
Manufactured in Turkey with one of our preferred print suppliers, these Otter House jigsaw puzzles typically take seven weeks to produce and deliver from the point that signed-off, print-ready artwork was provided to us.
Imago has extensive knowledge and expertise in creating jigsaw puzzles and other similar items ready for market, including meeting and exceeding the criteria of sustainability, ethical, and safety standards for our customers. We’re delighted to produce these sustainable products in collaboration with Otter House and continue to create, source, and deliver with them on an ongoing basis.
